One of the OIE’s key missions is to ensure transparency in the global animal disease situation. The World Animal Health Information System (WAHIS) allows access to reliable and validated animal health information in order to control transboundary animal diseases effectively. This system ensures the early detection of emerging diseases, contributes to protect public health and global livelihoods, and plays a significant role in facilitating safe trade.

WAHIS+ will be an evolving tool, thanks to an ambitious project launched by the OIE to develop an improved system with increased functions and a stronger reporting network. In the coming years WAHIS+ will improve the collection and the dissemination of data on animal diseases of epidemiological significance, in both domestic species and wildlife.

According to their suggestions, WAHIS+ will embrace new technologies and satisfy the societal changes and future needs. The new reporting system will be faster, more intuitive, and will boast new features and increased functions, including extended data mining, customisable data queries and visualisation of temporal and spatial data.

Moreover, WAHIS+ will help public health officers to build a stronger global reporting community. Genomic data linked to epidemiological information and human health databases will strengthen disease traceability and make sure that appropriate responses are made on time. The interoperability between WAHIS+ and national/regional databases, as well as the ability to adapt WAHIS+ data analysis and display at national and regional levels, will support OIE regional programmes and initiatives and ensure the better use of data to guide policy and effective decision making for the future.
